Mr. Ken Carkhuff
“Hear ye, hear ye!” DAU deployed SBP 2010 - Intermediate Small Business Programs, Part A, on May 16th. This is the second new SBP course deployment in two months. The online course is part of the SBP Credential (CSBP 001) and the new prerequisite for SBP 202V, Intermediate Small Business Programs, Part B. Students that are enrolled in CSBP 001 that have completed SBP 201 do not have to complete SBP 2010. Also, any student that was currently enrolled in SBP 201 before it was retired must complete the course NLT July 17th or they will have to complete SBP 2010.

The SBP 2010 course builds on what you have learned in SBP 1010 with an overview of small business programs and small business systems. In addition, it takes a deeper, more advanced look into market research, solicitation, source selection/evaluation, and the Award/Post-Award process. This course will be essential in providing you with a greater understanding of your role and responsibility as a Small Business Professional (SBP).

The intermediate course consists of seven lessons and a final exam. The modules include:
  • The Big Picture
  • Using Small Business Programs
  • Using Small Business Systems
  • Conducting Market Research
  • Developing the Solicitation
  • Source Selection
  • Award and Post-Award


Upon successful completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of small business to the industrial base
  • Apply the appropriate small business programs and initiatives to support the decision-making process
  • Summarize the various small business systems necessary for expanding small business opportunities
  • Demonstrate key SBP activities during market research
  • Advise the acquisition team of small business elements of the solicitation
  • Demonstrate SBP activities during the evaluation and the source selection process
  • Determine methods for addressing post-award small business issues


The course is almost a complete revision of the predecessor course. It is designed for mid-level Small Business professionals with two or more years of acquisition experience to work as integral parts of the acquisition team. The course is also open to Industry.
